BIOGRAPHIES
LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF "NED BUNTLINE"
by Fred E. Pond

Heroized caricatures of "Buffalo Bill" and "Arizona Frank" gushed from the prolific imagination of the "man who fictionalized the West"--Ned Buntline. Yet his own life was as bizarre and eventful as those he created in his "biographies."

Buntline had achieved fame and a good measure of fortune as the author of a myriad of "dime novels," cheap paperbound adventure stories which bore such melodramatic titles as The Pirate King of the Floridas, The Doomed City of Sin, The Red Revenger, etc. The novels, published by such firms as Street & Smith and Beadle & Adams, appealed to a wide variety of soldiers, sailors and an army of ordinary workaday individuals.

MY LIFE AT CORRIGANVILLE MOVIE RANCH
by EDWIN COLIN

This book covers the early life of a boy who led a storybook life growing up at Corriganville Western Movie Ranch--a place where hundreds of movies were filmed. While living there, he became friends with many of the top western film stars of the 1950s, some of whom included John Wayne, Randolph Scott, and Glenn Ford, as well as Lee Aakers of the Adventures of Rin Tin Tin television series. He appeared in the classic western "Hidden Guns", which starred John Carradine and featured Angie Dickerson in one of her earliest screen roles. During his life at Corriganville, he was befriended by stuntman Shorty Shea, who would in 1969 die a tragic death by the hands of members of the Manson Family.
